How to Make Keto Marble Cake?
This chocolate and vanilla keto pound cake is not only moist and delicious but also extremely easy to make. What’s incredible about this bread: It’s made from scratch, you probably already have all the ingredients on hand, and it doesn’t fall apart even if you slice it while warm.
- Start by mixing all the wet ingredients into a large bowl. Add the eggs, heavy cream, melted butter (or coconut oil if paleo), vanilla extract, and stir for 1-2 minutes until frothy. You can use a whisk or an electric mixer.
- In a different bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking soda (or baking powder). You can sift these ingredients to remove the lumps that the almond flour may have.
- Combine two bowls contents until a smooth batter forms.
- Transfer 1/3 of the vanilla batter to a medium bowl and add the cocoa powder and heavy cream to get the chocolate layer.
- To assemble the cake and get those beautiful layers, then alternate with chocolate cake batter until you have no batter left. It’s easier than it seems, and you can watch the short video I made from you to see exactly how to make it.
- Bake the keto marble cake in the preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes.
Can you eat chocolate on keto?
Usually, chocolate is forbidden on keto because it’s filled with sugar and flavors. If you choose a sugar dark chocolate that’s sweetened with an approved keto sweetener you can eat chocolate on keto, but with a measure.
For example, adding 1/4 cup unsweetened chocolate chips to this keto sweet bread adds about 1g net carbs per slice.
I also have a recipe for homemade keto chocolate bars that are so easy to make.
How Many Carbs Are in this Chocolate Vanilla Marble Cake?
I sliced this bread into 14 slices, so each slice comes to about 182 calories and 5g carbs from which 3 grams are fiber. In conclusion, a slice is only 2g net carbs and that’s fantastic for a quick sweet keto snack.
How to Store Keto Marble Cake?
I love to serve this low carb pound cake warm, straight out of the oven but it tastes delicious a few days after.
It’s best to store the cake in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 3 days.
This keto cake is freezer-friendly, so you can freeze slices of cake wrapped individually in parchment paper and reheat when ready to eat.

- In a mixing bowl, add the eggs and whisk well. Add the heavy cream, melted butter (not boiling), and vanilla extract.

- To assemble the marble cake: Start by pouring about 3 tablespoons of vanilla batter on the bottom of the pan, then alternate with chocolate cake batter until you have no batter left.
